I am trying to run bzr dedicated server for getting a branch on Solaris 10 and I got the following error:

solaris10-x86$ bzr branch bzr+ssh://

The immediate problem here is that your filesystem encoding is '646' which is (approximately) ascii, but you seem to have a non-ascii-named file. Do you know what filesystem encoding this machine is actually supposed to be using?

This is probably an instance of or a duplicate of bug 794353.

I don't think there's anything very solaris or ssh specific here.

summary: - bzr+ssh fails on Solaris 10 x86
+ UnicodeEncodeError in isdir

You are right. This is not SSH or Solaris specific.

I am using a default installation of Solaris 10, with the following locales installed:

$ locale -a


Even if the filesystem encoding is set to 646, it allows UTF-8 filenames.
